A bit of history
Caudiel is located in the Comarca of Alto Palancia, Castellon. Caudiel is a word of Latin origin, ‘Capitellum’, meaning mountain top. The climate in this area is typically Mediterranean in nature.
Caudiel has a long history as evidenced by the remains of various civilizations: bronze age, Iberians and the Romans such as the Tower of Hannibal, also called the Mill. The origin of the current village seems to date from the colonization by Arabs, in 860AD.
One can walk through its quiet and narrow streets, visit the Torre del Molino, the Grieta Park, the Hermitage of Socos, the old washing areas ( lavaderos), the Carmelite convent, its many fountains, or the church. If we want to go out on foot or bicycle, the Vía Verde is a perfect place to start, although there are also many other alternative routes in the area.
The most important Festivals are San Antón (January), the Cherry Festival (June), the festivities (September) and Santa Úrsula (October).
